New Paper published in Social Problems by GMC Faculty

Global Migration Center faculty Erin Hamilton, Caitlin Patler, and Robin Savinar have a new paper in Social Problems, one of Sociology's top journals: "Transition into Liminal Legality: DACA's Mixed Impacts on Education and Employment among Young Adult Immigrants in California."

From the abstract: "While theories of immigrant integration predict that legalization will enable immigrant socioeconomic mobility, past research on DACA’s effects on education and employment have reached mixed conclusions, possibly reflecting the limitations of different methodological approaches to the question. Our findings suggest that without access to permanent legal status, DACA recipients will experience liminal legality with limited and contingent impacts on socioeconomic integration."
